Brain Behav. 2017 May;7(5):e00681 Authors: Van't Wout M, Longo SM, Reddy MK, Philip NS, Bowker MT, Greenberg BD Abstract BACKGROUND: Abnormalities in fear extinction and recall are core components of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Data from animal and human studies point to a role of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) in extinction learning and subsequent retention of extinction memories. Given the increasing interest in developing noninvasive brain stimulation protocols for psychopathology treatment, we piloted whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) during extinction learning, vs. during ... read more
